Being There is a short film that I directed where Vincent and I go on a lovers adventure combining both of our passions for Mountain and Ocean. From our preparations to the expedition, the story tells about 40 miles of skiing unsupported across a snowy valley of Northern Iceland in search for remote waves to surf. As you follow us skiing and surfing at the end of the Arctic winter, get an insight of our emotions and the purpose of our adventurous lifestyle.
Catch It is a short film directed by Sarah Menzies that paints a portrait of me during a season spent in the Lofoten Islands of Norway. I had met Sarah around a beer on the beach (wearing thick down jackets) as she was visiting from the US to make an activist documentary against oil drilling on the coastline of the archipelago. Catch It had a strong popularity in surf, adventure and outdoor film festivals around the world.

My free diver and spear fisher friend from Hawaii Kimi Werner and I met with Californian sailor and surfer Liz Clark on her sailboat Swell in the Tuamotu islands in French Polynesia. Doing what we love (surfing, sailing, spearfishing), we’ve shared about our convictions and the reasons why we follow unusual paths.
